This series is published in association with The Kohima Institute - a leading centre for advanced studies in the humanities and social sciences in Northeast India. This new series presents edited volumes shaped by the themes presented in each year's symposium (starting from the inaugural 2013 Hutton Lectures), and draws on papers, film screenings, and exhibitions of art and photography presented during the symposium. Topics and themes revolve around the social histories, languages, cultures, politics, and religions of minority ethnic communities in Northeast India and Myanmar. While building on the rich legacy of research in the region, beginning with the contributions of British and European colonial administrator-ethnographers such as J. H. Hutton, J. P. Mills, and Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf, the series also foregrounds important critique of this legacy, of social research methodologies generally, and the inextricable links between the social sciences and the colonial enterprise in post-colonial highland Asia.
